(New York, NY) -- Two Democratic lawmakers are calling on Fox News to take action and either suspend or fire host Sean Hannity.
This, after it was revealed yesterday in court that Hannity is a client of President Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Democratic Representative Jackie Speier tweeted that Hannity should be put on leave immediately. She asked "How can a network claim to be "fair and balanced" when their top anchor has a relationship with Cohen - Trump's enforcer and main conduit for info and shady deals?"
Taking it a step further, Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia told CNN that Hannity should be fired because the conservative host's involvement with Cohen is a conflict of interest. FBI agents raided Cohen's office, home, and hotel room last week as part of a months-long criminal investigation into possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations. Hannity repeatedly expressed outrage about the raid on his top-rated show after the news broke.
